BOWLING SUCCESS!!

TPB 106C

Working in partnership with Panathlon we ran our first SEND bowling events over the past two weeks. In total 22 local schools, 132 pupils, came to the Barnwood Ten Pin Bowling venue and played a series of games that made up a match.

 This proved to be a fantastic opportunity for our SEND pupils who really raised to the challenge of what was for many the first time at this activity.

Event 1 Winner Longlevens Infants - Runner up Tuffley
Event 2 Winner Churchdown Village Infants - Runner up Dinglewell Juniors.

Congratulation to all the schools who took part in what will be an annual event for the GSSN!
